Highlights of our recent work to prevent the spread of infectious diseases

August 2018

Smithsonian Pop-Up at Atlanta Conference


The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., recently opened a new exhibition, “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World,” that explores how infectious disease outbreaks shape our world. The exhibit will remain on view for three years. From the Nipah virus to SARS and HIV, it shows how viruses can spread between animals and people, why some outbreaks become epidemics, and how people in different disciplines and countries are working together to stop them.

A “pop-up” version of the exhibition will be on display at the 2018 International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases (ICEID), which will be held August 26-29 in Atlanta, GA.


New Toolkit Offers Info on Deadly Tickborne Disease


Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) is a bacterial disease spread through the bite of an infected tick. Through awareness and early recognition, frontline providers can reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with RMSF.

CDC's new toolkit provides information pertinent to healthcare providers and public health practitioners on the epidemiology, risk factors, clinical characteristics, treatment, and diagnosis of RMSF. The toolkit includes an instructional video and companion learning tools that can be used as references.

  ….We have long embraced a one-health paradigm at NIAID, especially in the realm of emerging and re-emerging diseases, most of which are zoonoses and must be studied in the context of the ecosystems humans share with microbes, non-human hosts, vectors, reservoirs and other actors. Many of the research efforts about which I speak and write almost daily fall under the one health rubric…

One Health Endorsed by American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) President 

“As veterinarians, we recognize and uphold our duty to promote the health of all species and the many places in which they live. As an association, the American Veterinary Medical Association is committed to helping advance the awareness and understanding of the interdependency of the health of humans and animals and the environments we share. The interconnections between people, animals and the environment are why the practice of One Health is so critically important for each of us. Working together through interprofessional collaboration with human health professionals will build bridges across disciplines in the true spirit of One Health, and this collaboration will allow us to protect, promote and advance the health of animals and humans alike.”

Iowa State, University of Iowa Partners [USA] In New Center Focused On Antibiotic Resistance Research

By Amy Mayer 9 hours ago

“... The Association of Public and Land Grant Universities and the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges selected the Iowa State collaboration from among nine proposals. Additional partners include the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and the Mayo Clinic.

Plummer said the center’s focus on collating studies from livestock, human health, pets and the environment will be consistent with the One Health concept, which is a global effort to foster interdisciplinary collaboration in health and medicine.

“We have to acknowledge that antimicrobial resistance is an issue that impacts all of us and because of that we all have to evaluate how we use antibiotics appropriately,” he said.

Iowa State and the University of Nebraska will provide initial funding of nearly $1.6 million over the first three years. Plummer is hopeful additional collaborators will come on board, and the founders intend to seek additional funding from federal and philanthropic sources. ...”

U.S. Agency for International Development One Health Platform Launch - Wednesday, July 25, 2018

One Health Platform Launch

For Immediate Release

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Bamako, Mali - On June 21, 2018, the U.S. government through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Malian government reinforced their long-standing partnership in the health sector with the launch of the “One Health Platform,” which will address diseases of pandemic potential in Mali. 

During the launch ceremony, Ambassador Paul A. Folmsbee spoke about the One Health approach, saying that “it is an innovative, multi-sectoral initiative for the prevention, detection and control of health threats, including epidemics and other major endemics.” He continued, “The U.S. government has been proud to partner with the Government of Mali on so many health initiatives and we are particularly excited to see the One Health approach formalized with the One Health Platform. We continue to look forward to working in partnership with all of the sectors involved in human, animal and environmental health to defend ourselves against outbreaks of pandemic potential.”

Prime Minister Soumeylou Boubèye Maïga echoed Ambassador Folmsbee’s sentiments and expressed Mali's commitment to support the One Health initiative and thanked the U.S. government for their commitment to the success of the program.

The One Health Platform is a key milestone in the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) program, which was launched in 2014 to boost countries’ capacity to detect, respond to, and recover from epidemic threats. In Mali, GHSA works to increase the government of Mali’s ability to prevent, detect, and respond to emerging infectious disease threats using the “One Health” approach.  It is estimated that at least 75% of emerging and re-emerging diseases are either zoonotic (spread between humans and animals). This approach unites human, animal, and environmental health into a comprehensive multi-sectoral framework, recognizing that stressors in any of these domains impact the others and increase the likelihood of experiencing deadly outbreaks. 

Specifically, the One Health Platform includes training nurses and hospital workers on infection control measures, investing in the nationwide roll-out of the District Health Information System surveillance system, conducting cross-border emergency preparedness exercises, purchasing equipment and supplies for laboratories, and supporting the development of multi-sectoral standard operation procedures to combat zoonotic disease outbreaks.  

The One Health Platform coordinates all One Health activities in Mali and defines leadership roles for the ministries of Health, Livestock, Environment, and Agriculture, and supporting roles for six other ministries. This platform is just one example of USAID’s investment, in collaboration with other U.S. government partners, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and National Institutes for Health, in activities to strengthen the human and livestock health systems of Mali including in the surveillance, laboratory, reporting, emergency management and workforce development sectors.
